How has July come and gone already? We started off the month celebrating the wedding of our friends Kim & Sean in beautiful Sun River, Oregon. Kept the cool in the kitchen by putting the slow cooker and grill to good use. And, made the best of the little-seen sunshine at the Oregon Coast.
Wishing we were still in Sunriver – Floating the river, spending time with friends, and firing up the BBQ.
Fondly remembering our last dinner at Muselet in Portland. Unfortunately they shuttered just one week later.
Keeping the heat out of the kitchen by making these Slow Cooker Steak Carnitas Bowls.
Saltivating over the cocktails and dishes prepared at the Pure Leaf Travelling Tea House event.
Consuming all the drinks at Hamlet’s Happy Hour for Deann’s birthday. Pictured here: Thumpers Revenge with carrot juice, lime, horseradish vodka and mint.
Getting creative with the toppings for these Blueberry Yogurt Smoothie Bowls.
Feeling giddy from a visit from my long-time friend Barb.
Still finding sand in my shoes from our last beach weekend in Pacific City.
Firing up the grill for this Peruvian Grilled Chicken with Creamy Green Sauce.
August is lining up to be a bit more relaxed with our schedule more wide open, leaving room for wine tasting weekends, soaking in the last of summer and exploring some of the many restaurants in our new neighborhood.
